School starts soon!
It seems as if everyone is gearing up for the first day of school. (How did the summer fly by so fast?) Autumn is knocking on September's door, as the month of August escapes all too quickly.
Soon, textbooks will replace beach towels in backpacks and tote bags. School uniforms will substitute for summer clothing styles.
Schools are preparing to begin.
Students are collecting school supplies. Teachers are sharpening red pencils. Principles are preparing for staff meetings. School bus drivers are learning their daily routes.

Have you purchased back-to-school clothing, school supplies, book bags, gym uniforms, athletic shoes and the other items your children will need for their return to the classroom?
